AN EVENING OF BIDS, BEVERAGES, AND BEATS TO HELP HOUSE TORONTO'S HOMELESS

FEATURING WANDA'S ART AWARDS

The Addison Residence

456 Wellington St. W.

 Wednesday, May 10th, 2017 

6-9pm

Toronto is one of the most exciting cities in the world – home to entrepreneurs, artists, athletes, politicians –and you! Each person is a thread in the diverse fabric of our city and together we make the weave stronger.

On May 10th, help provide a home for those who don’t have one. Bid on ties worn by some of Toronto’s most influential people and many other unique items while dancing to live local music. This year, we’ll showcase a little-known piece of Toronto – the artistic work of Homes First’s residents.

We are also thrilled to bring you our annual Wanda’s Arts Awards, a bursary program supporting our residents who use art to cope and heal. This is our 3rd year!  

Meet our 2016 recipients of the Wanda's Arts Awards.

Danika former resident of Homes First Savard's Women Shelter, winner of Wanda's Art Award is now a volunteer art instructor at Homes First and living independently!

How Tie One On Came to Be

In September 2013, Homes First hosted a complimentary dinner and film screening event for our long-time supporters. One of those invited, Councilor Mike Layton, had to decline as it was his honeymoon week. Grateful for the invitation and noting that part of the evening included a clothing drive, Mike called with his regrets but offered a box of ties. Homes First gratefully accepted, even though there’s not much demand for ties among the folks we serve.

A short while later we received a call from Layton’s office. They asked where they should send the box of Jack Layton’s ties. After we picked our jaws up off the floor, we collected the ties, and brainstormed what to do with this spectacular donation from the quintessential Toronto icon. And so the idea of an auction featuring ties and scarves from famous folk was born.
